The President asked for a report from the Elizabeth City 
Churchy ilrs. Anderson stated that the Aid Society had, 
during the past year, done good local work, but there was no 
missionary society in the church. She hoped that one would 
be organized while the Union was in session. It was decided 
to discuss this at a later meeting. 



4 Woman's Missionary [Tniox. 

A member of the Baptist society was introduced, and she 
gave the Union a hearty welcome to the citv and to the church 
parlors. Then a representative of the Methodist denomina- 
tion expressed her interest in the meetings and the work they 
represented. 

The President addressed the meeting and gave an account 
of the conference of presidents held in Durham during the 
meeting, of the Union of Orange Presbytery. She said that 
the presidents had agreed to ask all the Unions to set aside 
two weeks during the year for prayer and self-denial, one for 
Foreign Missions and one for Home Missions. The societies 
of the Unions had heretofore shown more interest and made 
larger contributions to Foreign than to Home Missions, and 
while she realized the importance of the Foreign Mission work 
and would not detract from it one iota, she wanted to have 
these meetings to emphasize the Home Mission work. Ours 
was a mission Presbytery, and if we let the work at home 
suffer, the whole church would feel the effect of it. 

It was moved to set aside two weeks every year for prayer 
and self-denial for missions'. After some discussion, the 
motion was carried, the time to be decided upon by the presi- 
dents cf the Unions. 

Tt was resolved to pray that 'more young men would enter 
the ministry, and that special prayer be made for the two can- 
didates who had just been taken under the care of Presbytery. 

The second meeting of the Union was held at 3 o'clock,- 
Wednesday afternoon. It was opened with devotional exer- 
cises, conducted by Mrs. W. J. Jones. The minutes of the 
previous meeting were read and accepted. 

The roll-call of delegates was responded to by reports from 

eighteen societies : Greenville, 1 ; Goldsboro, 1 ; Raleigh, 3 ; 

Xew Bern, 1 ; Henderson, 2 ; Washington, 4 ; Rocky Mount, 

1 ; Kinston, 1 ; Wilson, 1 ; Warrenton, 1 ; Tarboro. 1 ; Oxford, 

1 1. These reports showed, as they did last year, that the For- 



WO M A N '.S M I SS J ( ) N A l{ V I T N I < ) X . 5 

eign Mission Societies had more members than the Home, and 
the amount of money contributed to the Foreign work was 
almost twice as much as that given to the Home field. 

The question for discussion was: How can the indifferent 
and uniterested by reached? Almost all the delegates had 
something to say on this subject, and many helpful suggestions 
were made. It was decided that the best way to reach them 
was by prayer and personal influence ; then if they came to the 
meetings, give them something to do. Some had found a 
missionary rally helpful. 

Mrs. Heartt gave an account of the Mission Study Class in 
Raleigh, and said she thought that if there were more study 
classes, and if our mission literature was more generally read, 
it would increase the interest in missions. 

The third meeting was held mi Thursday morning at 10 
o'clock. The devotional exercises were led by' Mrs. Samuel 
Watkins. The minutes of the last meeting were read and 
accepted. 

It was moved to make Miss Bet-tie Penick honorary presi- 
dent of the Union. There were some remarks made on this 
motion, and many expressions of appreciation of the work 
done by Miss Penick for the cause of missions and for the 
good of the Union. The motion was carried unanimously. 

A paper prepared by Mrs. Wiswall, of Washington, was 
read by Mrs. Berry. The subject of the paper was "The 
Xeed and Authority of Home Missions." The President 
stated that the topic of the meeting was Home Missions, and 
she made a plea to the delegates to do all in their power to 
awaken more zeal for this most important cause. A full and 
free exchange of ideas on the Home Mission Work followed, 
in which all took part. Mrs. Watkins told of the work in 
Albemarle Presbytery, especially of Miss Daniel's school in 
Hyde County. Mrs. Saddler told of the beginning of the 
work in Pocky Mount and the encouraging way in which it

had grown. Mi's. Heart! gave an interesting account of some* 
work done among the factory children. Miss Dodson had 
taught among the mountains of our State, and she told of tin- 
eagerness with which these people learn, and how anxious, 
they are to know about the Bible; how they would walk live 
and six miles to hear a chapter read and explained. 

The meeting closed with sentence prayer for Home .Mis- 
sh ns, and adjourned to the Presbyterian Church to hear Dr. 
Painter's address before Presbytery on "The Home Life of 
the Chinese." 

The fourth meeting was held Thursday afternoon at •> 
o'clock. The devotional exercises were conducted by Mrs. 
0. R. Saddler. 

The President had prepared slips of paper containing data, 
to show what the Southern Church was doing in the Foreign 
Mission field. These slips were distributed among the dele- 
gates, and as the President asked questions, they were an- 
swered, and so much valuable information was gained in a 
pleasant way. 

The President announced that the topic of the meeting 
was Foreign Missions. She spoke of the encouragements of 
the work, and the great opportunities opening in all the fields 
for a great and glorious work. She asked that special prayer 
be made for more workers for the field. 

A representative from the Elizabeth City Church assured 
the Union that a missionary society would be organized, and 
there would be a report from it at the next* meeting. 
' A representative from the Episcopal society was introduced 
to the Union, and she expressed her regrets at not being- 
present at the first meeting to welcome the delegates, and to 
assure them of the interest of her society in the meetings.

MINUTES OF THE ELEVENTH ANNUAL SESSION 
OF THE WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION OF 
ALBEMARLE PRESBYTERY, HELD IN EN- 
FIELD, N. C., APRIL 21-22, 1909. 



The first meeting was held in the M. E. Church, Wednes- 
day morning at 10 :30 o'clock. 

It was opened by Rev. J. A. McClure, of Henderson. 
After reading the 72d Psalm, he spoke for a few minutes on 
"Our Missionary Obligation." His words were so earnest 
and inspiring that all present had their interest in missions 
revived and strengthened. 

After Mr. McClure left Mrs. Samuel Watkins, the Vice- 
President, took charge of the meeting. In doing so she ex- 
pressed the sorrow that all present felt in the great grief 
that had come to the President, Mrs. Primrose, and asked 
that in all the prayers she should be remembered. She hoped 
that all would gain inspiration from the meetings and take 
courage to go on with the work. She suggested that the 
Union take as its motto for the coming year Carey's words, 
"Expect great things of God, do great things for God." 

After reading the poem, "The Master is Coming To-day," 
the meeting was declared open for business. 

The minutes of the last meeting, held in Elizabeth City, 
N. C, April 22-23, 1908, were read by the Secretary. 

Corresponding Secretary's Report. 
There have been some discouragements in the work during 
the past year. No new societies have been organized, and 
the one at Aurora reports that there are not enough members 
to keep up the organization. When the Union met in Eliza- 
beth City last year the ladies of that church hoped to form a 
society and send a report in this year, but in answer to a 
letter written by the Secretary, they say that they have had 
no pastor, and have lost some of the members who were in- 
terested in this work, so no society has been organized.

After prayer the meeting adjourned. 

The second meeting was held Wednesday afternoon at 
3 :30 o'clock. 

Dr. Wakefield, of Barium Springs, led the devotional ex- 
ercises. He gave some account of the work at the Orphanage. 
He said that there were 175 children. A large' number of 
them are clothed by the ladies' societies, and just at this 
season they are looking forward to the arrival of their boxes. 
He spoke of the work they were required to do, and how 
they were trained and fitted to take up their work in the 
world.

16 societies: Goldsboro, 1; Raleigh, 3; New Bern, 1; Hen- 



Woman's Missionary Union. 5 

derson, 1 ; Washington, 4 ; Rocky Mount, 1 ; Kinston, 1 ; 
Wilson, 1 ; Warrenton, 1 ; Tarboro, 1 ; Oxford, 1. 

Mrs. Watkins said that she had urged the young people 
of her church to join the Union, but they did not feel that 
they could pay the 10 cent fee. 

Mrs. Munroe moved that the Young People's Societies be 
admitted to the Un-ion, and that they pay a 5 cent fee. 
This motion was carried, with the hope that all the Socie- 
ties would come into the Union before the next meeting. 

Miss Wallace, of Peace Institute, read a paper on "The 
Missionary Spirit.' 7 It was deeply religious and made a 
great impression on all who heard it. 

The discussion for the afternoon was, "Which is the Best 
Way to Get a Church Interested in Missions V 

Mrs. Watkins said that she thought that a great deal de- 
pended on having a pastor who was interested especially in 
missions. 

Mrs. Munroe thought that the best way was to give every 
one something to do. 

Miss Bates gave an account of the Raleigh Society and of 
how the rotation of the members in the three departments — 
Foreign, Home, and Local — had increased the interest of all 
in every branch of the work. 

After sentence prayer the following committees were ap- 
pointed : 

Resolutions of Sympathy to Mrs. Primrose — Mrs. W. C. 
Munroe, Mrs. R. S. McCoin, Miss Bessie Bates. 

To Thanh the Pastor and Members of the M. E. Church 
for the Use of Their Building. — Miss Sue Daniel, Miss Ethel 
Clement, Miss Mary E. Dodson. 

On Hospitality — Miss Wiswall, Miss Howell, Miss Wal- 
lace. 

The meeting adjourned. 



6 Woman's Missionary Union. 

The third meeting was held Thursday morning at 10 
o'clock. The devotional exercises were led by Miss Sue 
Daniel. The minutes of the previous meeting were read 
and accepted. 

The Committee on Hospitality presented the following 
resolutions : 

In the name of the ladies of the Missionary Union of 
Albemarle Presbytery, we wish to return many thanks to the 
good people of Enfield for the cordial welcome extended to 
us during the meeting. 

Especially do we appreciate the kindness of our Methodist 
friends in allowing us the use of their church, and the help 
given us in our music by the ladies of all the churches of 
Enfield. 

(Signed) Miss Sadie Wiswall, 

Miss Rosa A. Wallace, 
Miss Howell. 

The Committee on Resolutions of Sympathy to Mrs. Prim- 
rose presented the following: 

We, the members of the Woman's Missionary Union of 
Albemarle Presbytery, in session at Enfield, E". C, desire to 
express to you our deep sorrow over your sad loss, and assure 
you of our deepest sympathy in your affliction. 

We invoke in your behalf the assurance of the constant 
presence of our Heavenly Eather, and the comfort of His 
Spirit that you may be kept by His power, and sustained by 
His grace. 

(Signed) Mrs. W. C. Munroe, 
Mrs. R. S. McCoin, 
Miss Bessie Bates. 

The Committee to Thank the Pastor and Members of the 
M. E. Church presented the following:

dist Episcopal Church and the members of his congregation 
for the use of their most comfortable building. 

Miss Sue Daniel,

Woman's Missionary Union. 7 

The Secretary stated that at the meeting in Elizabeth City 
it had been decided to elect a Second Vice-President to act 
with the President and Vice-President as an Executive Com- 
mittee. 

Mrs. Wiswall, of Washington, was elected, but on account 
of failing health could not serve. 

Mrs. R. S. McCoin, of Henderson, was elected to take her 
place. 

There was some discussion as to the advisability of chang- 
ing the plan of having the Union meet at the same time that 
Presbytery met. It was thought best to change it. Miss 
Wiswall, of Washington, said that Presbytery would meet in 
Washington next spring, and asked that no change be made 
until after that meeting, as the Washington Society wished 
to entertain the Union. 

The question was left over to be decided at the next 
meeting. 

Talk by Mrs. Lacy, "What Are We Doing to Give the 
Gospel to Those Within the Bounds of Albemarle Presby- 
tery ?" 

Miss Sue Daniel gave a most interesting account of the 
work she had been doing in Hyde County, and made an 
earnest plea for some one to carry on the school. She had 
been obliged to give it up on account of her father's health. 

Mrs. Watkins made a plea for the negro. She said that 
in many places they seemed to be going back to heathenism. 
She thought we could do more for those that we came in 
contact with in our own homes, but that the best way to 
benefit them was by giving them an educated ministry, and 
we could do that by helping our own institution. 

After prayer and singing a hymn, the President announced 
that the Union stood adjourned. 

Mrs. B. R. Lacy, 
Corresponding Secretary.

PKOCEEDINGS. 

The Woman's Missionary Union of Albemarle Presbytery 
held its meetings in the Methodist Episcopal Church, Wash- 
ington, N. C. The first meeting was held Wednesday, April 
13th at 10:30 a. m. 

Mr. Belk led the devotional exercises and delivered the 
opening address. His text was from the fifth chapter of the 
Acts, "And daily in the temple ceased not to teach and preach 
Jesus Christ," 

He thought this would be an ideal motto for the Union, 
and urged all to more zeal, especially in the home field. 

Mr. Searight extended to the Union a cordial welcome 
from Mr. Plyler, the pastor of the Methodist Church, who 
was absent. 

Mrs. Watkins, the first Vice-President, took charge of the 
meeting. In doing so she expressed her pleasure at being 
in Washington again, and asked the co-operation of the ladies, 
hoping that all would be quickened to more zeal in the work 
and go home to render greater service. 

A beautiful address of welcome was given by Mrs. Samuel 
Fowl, for the Washington Society and was responded to, for 
the Union, by Mrs. W. C. Munroe. 

The Minutes of the last meeting, held in Enfield, N. C,

time from Presbytery. After some discussion it was carried 
and it was decided to meet the second week in May. If this 
time was not found convenient, to be subject to change by a 
vote of the Union. The reports from the Societies were 
read. Some of the delegates brought written reports and 
some read the filled-in blanks. As the written reports gave 
a better idea of the work accomplished, the Secretary was 
requested to ask the delegates next year to bring a written 
report of the work done by the women in the church, the 
blanks to be filled and returned to the Secretary to enable 
her to make a report. 

Mrs. Wat-kins read a letter from Korea, asking that special 
prayer be made that one million souls be brought to Christ 
during the year. Special prayer was made for this object by 
Rev. M. McCullen.

Also, we wish to express to Rev. M. T. Plyler and the 
members of the Methodist Episcopal Church our heartfelt 
thanks for the use of their most comfortable church. Those 
of us who were here ten years ago remember this same hospi- 
tality was enjoyed by this Missionary Union.

The members of the Woman's Missionary Union of Albe- 
marle Presbytery wish to express to the pastor and members 
of the Methodist Episcopal Church of Washington, N. C, 
their sincere appreciation of the many courtesies shown them, 
and to extend to them their thanks for the use of their com- 
fortable building. 

(Signed) Mrs. E. T. McCoin. 

Mrs. G. B. Thompson. 

The committee on the Constitution submitted a Constitu- 
tion and By-laws, which, with a few alterations, were ac- 
cepted. 

Committee on Constitution — Mrs. Samuel Fowl, Mrs. 
Margaret Payne, Mrs. W. C. Munroe. 

Committee to Distribute Literature — Miss Telfair, Miss 
Hattie Harris. 

A motion was made and carried, that the Secretary write 
to each society and urge them to send one or more delegates 
to the next meeting. 

Miss Sue Daniel has resumed her work in Hyde County, 
and was present at the meeting. She made a request that the 
ladies send her some books for children. She is trying to get 
a library for the school, and she said that no doubt many of 
the ladies had books at home that they would send. Any kind 
suitable for children or any reading books would be accept- 
able. If a few were sent they could be directed to her at 
Swan Quarter. If a large package, send by express, care 
Miss Sadie Wiswall, Washington, N. C. 

A motion was made and carried that each delegate be a 
committee of one to put this before her society.

Responsibility as a Missionary Base of Supplies."

Home Missions ?"

Many of the ladies took part in the discussion, and helpful 
suggestions were made to increase the interest in the Home 
work. The ladies were urged to read the church literature, 
and to put God and His work first. 

An invitation was given from Presbytery to hear a special 
sermon on Foreign Missions by Rev. M. Deal. 

After singing a hymn, and prayer, the Union stood ad- 
journed to meet in Henderson the second week in May, 1911.
